Trump’s election proved that not only are we as dim witted as Eric Trump in a spelling bee, but as f*ckingly feckless as a Sean Hannity Truth Serum
Trump will lose, resign in December and possibly be pardoned by Pence. I could see that.
But that won’t protect him from New York State indictments for money laundering and racketeering. Federal charges could await him if Pence refuses to such a deal, but that’s unlikely as Pence is equally weak.
But the bottom like is, this ain’t Nixon.
Nixon was a flawed, weak man who could not control his darker side. But in the end, stepped back and allowed the world to move forward without him.
Trump, however is a narcissistic sociopath who cares about no one other than himself. And when his power is wrestled away, he will be alone, save for his children already infected with his myopic, distorted views of integrity and justice. They will either be indicted for their crimes, or slowly disappear as sad footnotes to this horrible moment in history.
It is his final days in power that should worry the world. A drowning man will pull any and all under in order to save himself.
Swim away now, for that time is coming
These are, without a doubt, strange and troubled times. A pandemic, recession, racial tension, political unrest; and seven billion people looking for solutions. But as bad as it seems, it’s been worse.
It was just recently that the last Civil War pension was given to the surviving sibling of a Union soldier.That’s right. The Civil war, which for young people must seem like the faded text from their history books, ended only 150 years ago. A half million Americans died. And we survived.
My mother is 98 and her mother had the Spanish flu, and they both lived into their late nineties.
My mother lived thru the depression, the Second World war, nuclear bombings, Jim Crow, the Cold war, the Kennedy assassination, Vietnam, the sixties, and you know the rest. We emerged bruised and battered, but with an understanding;
that life is hard, but worth it.
That justice delayed is justice denied.
And that ultimately, gravity wins.
But not today.
We have a lot of work to do, but I see the bright eyes of young people determined to push ahead and make a difference. They inspire me to be my best.
There are really only two truths; yes I can and no I can’t.
The rest is up to you.
